Just a basic survey from the below:

VA has healthcare careers perfect for Veterans - VAntage Point

(below-“in part” cited-quoted in “quotes” from listed web-link from latest VA News email: “Free Scuba Diving for Disabled Veterans, Free Six Flags Georgia Admission, The Mission Continues Day of Service” dated WED, 21 AUG 2019)

“These six VA healthcare jobs are perfect for former military members.
  1. Intermediate Care Technician (ICT) After active duty, it may be difficult to find a civilian healthcare position that allows you to apply military training without additional licenses and credentials. But through VA’s ICT program, former military medics and corpsmen can work as healthcare providers at VA medical centers (VAMCs) and continue their medical training, skills and career.Although emergency room positions are highest in demand, ICTs are also needed in mental health, geriatrics, primary care and surgical services.

  1. Health Technician Professionals working as Health Technicians at VA provide diagnostic support duties and medical assistance to VAMCs and specialty clinics. In an emergency setting, many of the duties performed by this role mirror that of a paramedic and align closely with the experiences of military corpsmen.

  1. Nursing Assistant Nurses play a crucial role at VA. They work across disciplines and treatment settings with a medical team to provide integrated care for Veterans under their watch. Day in and day out, they make a difference in the lives of Veterans and their families through their patience, empathy and care.Nurses can start a post-military career at VA as a Nursing Assistant and take advantage of the special education support programs VA offers to earn the degrees and certifications necessary to become a Licensed Practical Nurse or a Registered Nurse.

  1. Physician Assistant Physician assistants provide primary care and preventative care as part of a medical team that includes nurses, physicians and surgeons. A physician assistant examines patients, offers diagnoses of conditions and provides treatment for Veterans at VA under the supervision of a physician.

  1. Physician With access to cutting-edge technology and pioneering research opportunities, physicians at VA lead the charge in Veteran care. Their work includes primary care services and specialty medicine. Physicians at VA are given great latitude to develop solutions that improve patient outcomes. Physicians have special insight into VA’s patients and can thrive in this environment.

  1. Physical Therapist At VA, physical therapists make a huge impact in Veterans’ quality of life. They increase mobility, reduce pain and restore independence through physical rehabilitation, wellness plans and fitness programs. Physical therapists help Veterans understand their injuries so they can enjoy mobility benefits, long-term health and a high quality of life.”

So, just out of curiosity, how many vets this forum, actually in school-university, etc.…seeking degrees in any of the above….. or any other basic 4-year degree program or advanced degree program????

IAW Vet's going through MEB/PEB process long time ago- many wanted seek psychology degree, so with that in mind- those interested please see:





However, as with most professional advanced degrees, one should contact-perhaps-the State licensing agency- one plans practice in upon degree completion- prior to enrollment in order see if that vets' state accepts online degrees- like apparently Alabama's virtual school from Post #6, but in some cases will not accept-possibly, as in past(?) online degrees in fields like psychology, etc......?

Might want see below web-links, as example only, as well attached "Board of Examiners in Psychology Sunset Audit Report June 2019.pdf" file from listed web-links....?????

Those, vets wishing to become licensed-practicing attorney's as well should check with their states professional and licensing organizations as well perhaps- see below if interested, for example only:

Distance Education

Following in "quotes" cited from above web-site: "Standard 306: Distance Education sets out the parameters for earning credit for study offered through distance education. Currently, no law schools that provide a J.D. degree completely via distance education are approved by the ABA. Earning an education completely via distance education may drastically limit your ability to sit for the bar in many states. "




Thanks and hope this assists some vets considering possibly seeking employment in legal profession......and those any other information on "legal studies" please feel free to provide if so desire....?????

Guess should close this thread out, those interested may want see:

G.I. Bill

Below in bold italics quoted/cited from above web link:

"The GI Bill gave World War II servicemen and servicewoman many options and benefits. Those who wished to continue their education in college or vocation school could do so tuition-free up to $500 while also receiving a cost of living stipend.....As a result, almost 49 percent of college admissions in 1947 were veterans. The GI Bill opened the door of higher education to the working class in a way never done before."

Thanks....hope assists some vets and dependents out there.....

I used my GI BILL Chapter 30 for my B.S., Army Tuition Assistance(TA) for my Graduate Certificate in Teaching, and a combination of TA and the Chapter 33 Post 911 for my Master's.
I am currently looking into the possibility of using VOC-REHAB for a Doctorate.

LeoS- thank you being only one rely this thread PEB Forum/ survey- what does that say, in and of itself.....? However am curious as had heard before:

I am currently looking into the possibility of using VOC-REHAB for a Doctorate.

How does in fact one go about utilizing VOC_REHAB for this express purpose?

Additionally, IAW vets that obtained masters degrees etc... in military, did not necessarily do so good GRE (academia perishable skill when preoccupied with becoming technically and tactically proficient) ...but IAW many their professors stated that their military students were among the best they had.....???? Can anyone corroborate......or refute????

Finally, it is odd IAW some vets whom were interested, perhaps in, other advanced degrees like religious studies..... many of top universities exempt Medical Doctors and Attorney's from the GRE requirement...but all others must take....why is that? Are Medical Doctors and attorney's that much more proficient in problem solving and math, etc..than others......? One would simply beg to differ, as know several MD's not very proficient high level math, etc.......nor well versed in ways of the "real world" so to speak, as spend most of their lives in scholl obtaining their medical degrees, etc......?????

Any other veterans out their have thoughts on the matter....?????

If interested see for example only:


Thanks LeoS.......
